What Makes It Great

I have back pains where I would have to wake up in the middle of the night to stretch. We bought this bed 4 months ago as it was one of the most expensive beds in the showroom and thinking it would help. After the first few nights, I felt that the buttons on the bed were so deep it's like sleeping on mole hills. We bought a firm mattress as the medium in the showroom was too soft. The firm one we received felt a lot firmer than the one we tried in the showroom. It is uncomfortable, hard and bumpy and my back has not improved. I still get restless night every night so I went back to the showroom to speak about the guarantee and options before the guarantee term ended. There was only 1 other bed in the showroom around the same price with worse reviews. I was advised that the bed can take some time to soften up and purchasing a mattress topper would help with the bumps. So I left it as it is as I did not want to end up with a worse bed and bought a mattress topper online. It reduced the bumps for a couple of months as the mattress topper is made of cotton (like sleeping on a duvet). Now the weather is warmer and thinking the bumps may have soften, I removed the topper and the bumps are still there! The worst part is that we just came back from a 3 night weekend break and I did not get any back pains for the 3 nights while we were away. So the problem is with the bed and now we are stuck with it every night !

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

Ensure that every single part of your body is moulded to your mattress by going for one with 3000 springs, all perfectly aligned and adjusting to every movement you make

This spring system is exclusive to Dreams. However, the pocket spring is generally a very good spring system for a mattress and will give you all the comfort and support necessary

A decent height for padding material representing a barrier between you and the springs that make up the core of the mattress. This type of mattress should be comfortable as a result of the depth of this soft and comfortable material

Medium Firm is the optimal firmness for a mattress if you are looking for comfort but also suffer from some minor back problems. This is because this type of mattress will ease the amount of strain on your muscles but not in such a way to deter comfort, ensuring a great nights sleep

Questions and Answers

what does the zipped option mean in the sizing?

Answer: Hi , The zipped options are zip and link options. This is beneficial for couples with different comfort preferences, as you will be able to have two mattresses and join them together to create one king or super king. It can also help to get your mattress up the stairs if your stairs are narrow, as you can unzip the king/super king into a smaller mattress. Thank you.

Can an electric blanket be used with this mattress?

Answer: An electric blanket can be used with this mattress however we do not recommend that they are placed directly on the surface of the mattress. In addition, using an electric blanket may alter the comfort grade of the mattress. We recommend following all guidelines and instructions specified by the manufacturer of your electric blanket. Kind Regards, Dreams

Is it true that you don’t flip the mattress. How do you know which is the top?

Answer: This mattress is not double sided and therefore cannot be turned over. The top of the mattress can be determined by ensuring that the label on the mattress is the correct way up. Kind Regards, Dreams

We had an awful first night’s sleep on this mattress (bought the medium one, but it seems much harder than in store). The delivery men constructed the bed, how can I check they put it the right way up - which label are you referring to (none on the top)?

Answer: The label referred to is the label on the side of the mattress. This will be stitched into the edge. Providing the label is the correct way up, the mattress will also be. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can you choose which side is medium and which side is firm, on the zip and link option?

Answer: Hi , This mattress is rotatable, so you can choose which side has which firmness when you are placing it on your bed frame or divan. Thank you for your question.

what covers the springs in the mattress?

Answer: Hi , Each spring is individually packed in a polyester case. Kind Regards, Giedre

Whats the weight of the Mattress?

Answer: Hello, This product will be 18-25kg depending on it's size. Many thanks for the question.

Whats the spring count for the double, i wanted more than 2500?

Answer: There will be 2400 springs in a double. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi are the mattress, or the cover, treated with chemical fire retardants?

Answer: Hi , Yes, all mattresses are required to by law. Thank you.

6 months now - pleased with mattress

I bought this earlier in the year, so it's been in use for about six months now. I wanted a good quality British made mattress, and this fits the bill. I was also attracted where it said it would help keep me cooler in warm weather. But to be honest I have not noticed it keep me any cooler in the hot weather than my previous matress, so that is slightly disappointing, however it is wonderfully comfortable and supportive. It's a heavy mattress but it is easier to turn that my previous mattess as I do not need to flip it over, just rotate it flat. The handles are good and strong for that. The way I feel now, I would definitely select this mattress and manufacturer again when it comes to replace it. This is also the first time I have bought from Dreams, and I will say their service was extremely good. They kept me informed, agreed the delivery date, the delivery people kept me informed on the time they would arrive and checked what my road was like, parking and access to the house. When they arrived they were polite. Took the old mattress away, explained how to look after my new mattress. I love my mattress and I cannot fault the service I got from Dreams. Thank you.

Fantastic mattress and service!

I bought this mattress almost a month ago after months of interrupted and low quality sleep. I previously had a memory foam mattress from IKEA, one of the ones that comes folded up and, it was terrible from the get go. I was always too hot, it misshaped very quickly... it was time to get a new one! I picked this mattress because it is all natural fibres, no memory foam, pocket spring and the right firmness for me. Well, I am not disappointed. I have had the best sleep ever since it arrived. The gentlemen who dropped it off rang throughout the day to let me know when they would be arriving and they took it directly to my room when they arrived. I live in a flat and they were happy to bring it up stairs. They also had shoe covers to protect my carpets! All round, excellent product and service.

Wonderful new mattress

I had been waking up with back pain every day, which appeared to be getting progressively worse, and uncomfortably warm because our matress also had memory foam. We purchased a new mattress a month ago. Day 1 I woke up with a little twinge in my back but the pain was not like I have had and normal body temperature. Day 2 - the same, Day 3 - woke up feeling refreshed and well rested. We shouldn't have waited so long to get a new mattress because I have been waking up every day feeling refreshed, well rested and with a normal body temperature since! Love, love, love our new mattress!


When we buy a bed, we are actually buying a set of parts, the most important being the mattress. I purchased my 'Bed' a couple of months ago and it was delivered 2 weeks ago. When I went to Dreams the first thing I identified was the bed itself. Then Next came the mattress. It had to be just right, so I tried a few. None of which felt 'Right'. Then came the Flaxby Natures Element DNAir Mattress. It was the right one for me even before I sat on it, and once I laid on it I knew this was the one. I have now had it for 2 weeks and it is great! The Best Buy ever! Worth every penny.

Quite Simply - The Best

My old Millbrook mattress was well overdue for replacement, although it had done sterling service it was time for another visit to Dreams.... I was a bit dubious about giving my personal details to have suggestions made but I was offered a choice of four suggestions and eventually chose a medium Flaxby Nature's Element mattress. It is the most comfortable night's rest I have ever had. I don't sleep well but have had much more since buying this mattress and even when I'm awake in the middle of the night I'm rested. A really good investment.

Farewell to backache!

I wish I had bought this mattress years ago! From day one after it was delivered I woke up without any lower back pain, and that is how it has been ever since. The test bed in the Dreams shop correctly identified what type of mattress was the right one for me, and I am so happy I went along with their suggestion. It is firm with just the perfect amount of support in all the right places for the position I sleep in and for my size and bodyweight. Would recommend with no hesitation or reservations.


We have been sleeping on our new mattress for about two weeks now. Moved away from memory foam as it was always too hot and once sunk into it found it hard to move making our sleep always disturbed as the simple act of turning over meant waking up. This new mattress though is superb, cool, firm and supportive. We have been sleeping very well indeed. It may be expensive but two things you must have; a good bed and a good pair of shoes. Because if you’re not in one, you’re in the other.

The mattress

I went to but a memory foam mattress know I would have a good choice range at Dreams. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly the staff where, also how i could be tested on a machine which gave me the excact mattress i needed. The staff were very knowledgeable and hospitable. My whole experience and now my comfortable nights sleep is all to the fantastic staff, information I recieved and the fact they took my old mattress away was simply perfect. Thanks to the staff that helped.

Simply Perfect Mattress

We are so happy we purchased this mattress, changing from a memory foam back to a traditional mattress, it’s nice and deep but not too deep that the sheets don’t fit, comfortable, cooling and possibly the best night sleep we have had in years, the delivery team were helpful and friendly there isn’t anything to complain about. This is our 2nd purchase from Dreams both via online ordering and we will defuse using dreams again

Most comfortable mattress I’ve owned

I purchased this item a month ago along with a bed from dreams. I had to wait a few weeks for a delivery date but I’m gathering it’s because I chose the installation option as well as removal. The mattress is extremely comfortable. Its so comfortable you just want to stay in bed and watch tv or sleep ! My partner suffers with a spine issue and this mattress has subdued some of the pain she has after a nights sleep.

Just what we needed

Due to a back injury I needed a mattress that would help me get comfortable and this mattress is fantastic, we tried out the machine that finds the right type of mattress for us and recommends a type that would be suitable. I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first but after using the mattress now for 2 weeks I’m starting to get a good nights sleep and have recommended the mattress to family and friends

A perfect night’s sleep

We needed a new mattress for our bed that suited both my husband and myself. He is a big chap and wanted a firm one but I have arthritis in my spine and need a medium one Dreams were able to accommodate us both with their zip link mattress. It was a perfect choice and we can both now enjoy a good night’s sleep. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dreams to anyone looking for a perfect matrix’s.

Pure amazing mattress

Bought this after a visit to one of the Dreams shops and had the "sleep analyzer" (can't remember what they called it). It recommended me a firm mattress and after trying this on, fell in love instantly. It doesn't have the memory foam or anything like that, but it really doesn't need it. It is comfortable beyond belief, and there's a chance we'll buy the same mattress for our other bed.

Hands down the nicest thing I ever slept on!

This mattress was a splurge, and I joke it was made knitted by wolves in a shed in Wales or some such exotic-ness given the price. But regardless it was a great investment. honestly so comfortable, firm but soft etc. It’s so good we’ve had it almost 5 months and I’ve come on here just to review it! So if in doubt go ahead great quality and luxury. No wear and tear at all 5 months in.

Great nights sleep

My wife and I can never really agree in anything. When we were going around to the different stores I would like a mattress but she would hate it, and when she loved one I hated it. We were seriously considering buying two mattresses and putting them together. But when we both played down on this mattress we looked at each other and said this is the one for us.

Very comfortable

I suffer with all over body pain and needed a new mattress and went to Dream to seek one out. The staff were very helpful and their fabulous sleep machine recommended this mattress for me. I tried it out and bought it. It's been at home for 2 weeks now and after a little getting used to a new mattress I've finally have athe best nights sleep I've had in ages.

Wow what a mattress

I only bought this three weeks ago, but the difference it has made to the sleep pattern of both myself and my husband is extreme. The mattress is both firm and soft, firm underneath where you need it and soft on the top so you are comfortable. I just wish that I had found this months if not years ago. Never going back to any other type again.

Great service

I have purchased a ottoman bed and a separate mattress over the last few months, and I have found the, service excellent and the staff, helpful, friendly, polite and knowledgeable, and the prices reasonable . My deliveries were on time and the delivery men were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend Dreams to my friends and family.

Very Firm

We have this mattress in firm. The mattress itself is very good quality but firm definitely means firm in this case. Since having this mattress a month ago I haven't had a good night's sleep. I sleep on my front and I'm now suffering terribly with lower back pain and lack of sleep. I dread going to bed nowadays.

Firm and amazI got mattress

I bought the mattress a month ago. We bought it for the guest bedroom but we loved it so much that we started sleeping in the guest bedroom! The mattress in the master bedroom is from Bensons. After getting this one we wished we would have got the master one from dreams as well! So pleased!

Really comfortable

We have had this for about a month now and it is really comfortable. It has also excelent support fearures which is essential since I have arthritic problems. It doesn't get uncomfortabley hot but keeps a warm cosy feel. I would reccomend this range of mattresses to anyone.

Excellent quality

We wanted a product that was as eco friendly as possible whilst still being able to get a split comfort mattress. My partner can now sleep very comfortably on his firm side. Well crafted an in comparrisson with other brands great value for the quality of work.

Fantastic firm but comfortable mattress.

We have had this mattress a month now and couldn't be happier with it. We wanted a firm mattress due to lower back problems (which have now improved) but despite being firm it is very comfortable. You can clearly see how well made it is and of high quality.

Love it!

Had this mattress 3 weeks and I've had the best sleep in ages. My last mattress had a memory foam topper but after 6 years I felt I was sleeping in a hammock. I thought this would be too firm but it's been bliss from the first night! Highly recommend!

Sleep, glorious sleep

For a long time I could only dream of a good nights sleep, then I bought this mattress from Dreams and have turned my dreams into reality. The mattress is so comfortable it's unbelievable. No more tossing and turning just sleep, glorious sleep

At last...a good night's sleep

Very grateful for guidance on which mattress to choose. Medium firmness, so no sinking into the mattress, just a nice amount of support. And, as it's made from natural materials, one doesn't get hot and uncomfortable. Well worth the money.

Perfect Mattress

We bought this mattress a few weeks ago after it was recommended by the dreams sleepmatch machine. It was not cheap but it is something we will spend up to 8 hours a night on for the next 10 years so it had to be right. This certainly is.

Perfect mattress

Brought this mattress a couple of weeks ago and I’m wishing we brought it sooner. It’s ridiculously comfortable and both me and my partner love it. The only problem we have is never wanting to get up in the morning as it’s so comfy.

Super comfortable bed

We bought a Flaxby Natures Element Dnair Mattress - Medium Firm / Firm single bed from Dreams for our 16 year old daughter and she absolutely loves it and says it is so comfortable and much better than her last bed!


We have been sleeping on the bed for a few weeks now and we could not be happier. Very comfortable. It’s only when you get a new bed do you realize how bad your previous one was. Don’t wait, get a new mattress.

Super comfortable

Was having lower back pain from a memory foam mattress that was too soft. Was recommended this after doing an assessment at a store. It is literally perfect. Super comfortable and I no longer wake up in pain.


Its high quality, but only one sided. Seller told me you should flip it every few weeks. No! You don't flip this one - you only rotate it every season. Very comfy and stupid expensive! Worth it? Yes.

Best nights sleep

If I had known about these mattresses 20years ago I would have brought one then. I’ve had the best nights sleep since buying this and will be buying another when the time comes. Well worth the money.

Large comfortable bed

We have had our bed 2 weeks now & we love it.Sleeping in comfort & waking up feeling refreshed with none of the back aches i had previously.The extra size suits us with enough room to slerp in comfort.

Super Comfy

I bought this mattress a month ago and I have really bad back and joint problems. This mattress is great at supporting me no matter if I lay on my side or back. I would highly recommend this mattress.

Wonderfully comfortable

This mattress was recommended by the Dreams team and is softer than I had intended buying. However, it suits us so well and is giving us much better sleeps and is so comfortable we can't believe it!

Perfect for back pain

Bought this mattress a month ago and was quite hesitant as I had memory foam previously, but this mattress has turned out to be a lot better for my back and I’m not in nearly as much pain anymore.

Best sleep in ages

I bought this mattress a few weeks ago & I’m sleeping so much better. I suffer with lower back pain & since purchasing this mattress my pain has nearly gone. Would definitely recommend.

Very comfortable

Very pleased with the mattress over all but disappointed that it could only be turned round not over which was the style of mattress we told the staff at Dreams we were looking for.

Great mattress

This was one of only a couple of mattresses that I found comfortable, this one was half the price of one in another shop and gives the same comfort and support so perfect for me
